Oceansouth began in 1985 in a small garage in Melbourne, Australia as a part-time project making boat ladders and bimini tops. It quickly grew into a global leader in the design and manufacturing of marine accessories. The company expanded its product line beyond its initial offerings, becoming an industry innovator known for blending functionality with style. This reputation for quality led to national recognition in Australia and a move to a larger manufacturing facility in 1990.

In 2012, Oceansouth made its mark in the U.S.A by establishing its divisional headquarters in Miami, driven by the ambition to reach a broader market and to capitalise on the influential US boating scene. This expansion into the U.S.A. was a huge success, leading to further growth in North America and setting the stage for Oceansouth’s foray into the European sector in 2014, with its European base established in Germany.

With our products now sold in 94 countries worldwide, Oceansouth is the premier market leader in marine and boating accessories.

Can I motor with these installed?

Yes, they are comfortable at 20-25 knots

Are these easy to install?

Yes! Follow these simple steps:
-Insert the bars and extend the poles.
-Adjust the angle so the bars align with your T-top/hardtop.
-Place the fabric on and loop it across an existing bar for maximum strength while motoring.

How can I ensure the angle of the shade will work with my T-Top?

The taper on the bars includes an angle adjuster that can be rotated and moved up and down, ensuring your shade is perfectly aligned with the T-Top.
Alternatively, if you purchase our clamp-on rod holders, the angle can easily be adjusted as well, ensuring the perfect setup for your boat.
